Globalstar Travel Management has formed a strategic partnership with travel technology firm DCS Plus to develop complete solutions for its partners.
The two companies will work together on everything from a mid-back office system to travel content aggregation and distribution software, as well as a corporate self-booking tool and a B2C platform.
This partnership marks DCS Plus as the official mobile app provider for Globalstar and sets the launch of Tripstar, a travel itinerary mobile app built to support business travellers’ needs.
Globalstar says Tripstar will offer a blend of business and leisure experience, from trip management to flight status notifications, as well as local recommendations and communication capabilities to allow travellers to connect directly to their agent.
Cristian Dinca, CEO of DCS Plus, commented: “In the past 16 years we have tackled the changes technology brought upon the travel industry and provided end-to-end software solutions to help businesses grow and boost productivity. Now with Tripstar we extend in a natural way the technological know-how to taking care of the overall travel experience and improve the relationship between TMCs and the travellers.”
Steve Hartwell, president of Globalstar, added: “We are delighted to be partnering with DCS Plus as we continue to invest in the technology development of our Starsuite of products with Tripstar being our latest one.”
